50 NEAR DEATH IN A PANIC AT PICTURE SHOW Presence of Mind of Policeman Hogan Saves Women and Children From Injury Film Explodes, Badly Burning Proprietor and Operator, but Audience Escapes Fifty persons, mostly women and children, narrowly escaped death or serious injury in a fire which was preceded by an explosion in the new Hayes street moving picture theater in Hayes street between Franklin anvl Gough. shortly after 6 o'clock 'ast nigrht. Isaac Voorhies, tlfe pro prietor of the show house, who was acting as the operator, was seriously hurned about the hands and face and is at the central emergency hospital in a dangerous condition- That no one was injured in the panic which followed the explosion was due to the presence of mind of Policeman K. J. Hogan and to the fact that only few people composed the audience. Hogan was standing just inside the door when the explosion took place and seeing the danger he quickly threw open the street doors and turned the switch throwing on the electric lights. This allowed the people to see the exit and make their way to the outside ■without trampling upon each other in the darkness. As it was, there was a rush for the Uoor and several women in their fran tic effort to gain the exit tumbled over one another. The picture which as being displayed when the explosion occurred was that of the cowboy trpe, and the scene pic tured a young woman being rescued from Indians by her cowboy lover. Suddenly there was a roar in the operating room which was followed by a billow of flame and smoke. The flames spread rapidly aver the operat ing room and the theater became fall of smoke. Some one cried fire and the entire audience arose and began the wild scramble for the street. Voorhies remained at his post and attempted to battle with the flames in the hope of saving some of the valu able films. When the fire department arrived he was so seriously buried that Fire Chief Murphy thought it necessary to rush the injured man to the central emergency hospital in his automobile. The new Hayes street theater is a class A building and has but recently been completed.

Jordan Appeals to People for Justice Governor Johnson Accused of Trickery, Misrepresentation and Ignorance Charging that he has been the victim of trickery, misrepresentation and ignorance on the part of Governor Johnson, Secretary of State Frank C. Jordan has appealed to the public for justice In the constitutional amendment con troversy. . Jordan's appeal for fair play is made in the form of an open letter ad dressed to the "voters of California; to my friends especially and to Hon. Hiram W. Johnson, governor of California, particularly." It is one of the most extraordinary documents in the literature of Amer ican politics It is not recorded that any elective state officer in a northern state ever felt compelled to appeal to the public for a square deal from the head of an administration elected on tbe same partisan ticket, if by a muofi smaller number of votes. Jordan declares that he owes it to the people who elected him, and to himself, to put an end to a system of criticism and interference calculated to make his administration a failure in the eyes of the people. At the general election la»t year Secretary of State Frank C. Jordan re ceived a total of 202,546 votes. His plurality over his democratic opponent was 96 212 or nearly four times as large as Governor Johnsons plurality of 23,356. Out of the whole electorate 25.355 more voted for JoTdan than for Johnson. The secretary of state makes his especial appeal to more than 200,000 citizens who are directly responsible for his election. His open letter is something more than an extraordinary political document. It is a most humaft and earn est protest against opposition and criticism amounting to persecution from a source whence he had the right to expect co-operation. Instead of submitting tamely to the almost direct charges of tampering with the constitutional amendments, to prevent the people from expressing their will, Jordan puts the responsibility squarely up to Governor Johnson s ignorance of the work of the legislature, his enmity for Jordan and the unpar alleled ignorance and slovenliness of the last legislature and Its attaches As to Governor Johnson's enmity for him and the executive's alleged at tempts to hinder Jordan's work from the start, the secretary of state Snakes this direct statement In his open letter: • I went to you, governor, in all frankness and manliness, told you that I desired to have your assistance and to assist you »n every-»ay to make your administration most creditable. Not once .dld * (i f°- but thrice, and each time received from you assurance of friendship and a desire to co-operate, but, governor, while you smiled jn m> face you were knifing me in the back—pretending that you had no Interest in matters of legislation affecting my office, you were sending *?r "enators and assemblymen, my friends, and holding them up to assist jou in your schemes of injustice and wrong. Giving your favorites all the assistance they asked for, you forced the crippling of my office, ben atom and assemblymen, not one but many of them, came to me andl told me how sorry they were to have to vote against my interests and my office and gave the reasons why and showed that you were using the powers of you/ office wrongfully. Jordan declares that when he first sought the aid of the attorney gen eral in straightening out the amendment muddle and preparing the proposi tions for submission to the people the governor pronounced it "all rot. bays Jordan: - . . . You know now that the condition these amendments are in Is "rotten." Instead of assisting me as you should in a matter so impor tant, you. whenever opportunity offered, have been quick to say that which would put me in a wrong light. Instead of l°okln« l"to t t**l?*l -«ter, coming yourself or sending a representative to see what the situa tion really was. you stood aloof and talked up "jobbery and of the rights of the people in jeopardy." In the Los Angeles Tribune of recent date yeu were credited with saying: "Today I received my first intima tion of the matter (the effort to prevent the amendment going on the ballot). I think there is a job on foot to prevent the direct legislation being submitted. Immediately on my arrival in Sacramento Sunday I will take the matter up" How cowardly and unfair, governor. lou knew when you said this that you had nothing to back up such an as sertion or intimation. Jordan takes issue squarely with the governor both as to his attitude toward Jordan's attempt to secure legal publications of the amendments and what he plainly designates as the governors bombastic attempt to take credit to himself for .securing publication, as follows: You say: "I am concerned only with the constitutional amendments and the special election of October 10." I, too. ha 7 been mightily deeply concerned. Bombastically you say: "Here are *ne «*atu*""?' 1911. This"volume is the official volume of the courts and of the ptople of the state—and in.it are embodied these very constitutional amend ments set forth in detail and printed exactly word for word and comma for comma, as Secretary of the Senate Parrish says he certified them. You know that these amendments, as set out in the statute! you referred to. are there because certified by the offleialf of thejegislature to you as being the final action of each branch of the legislature and your office officially notified the state printer regarding each and dl reCteYdouh B ei r y:PU "Onamy narrival Sunday night I found that it was ascer tained that the amendments were inextricably confused and could not be pHnted. Tuesday morning I am pleaded to say the amendments wll be printed." "I killed Cock Robin." You. doughty little admiral of our ship of state, had no more to do with starting the presses or orderlnc those amendments to be printed on last Tuesday than Sampson had with the licking given Cervera. Like him, you arrived on the scene after the light was over. From what he asserts is the record in the case, and by quotations from the first opjnlon rendered by the attorney general, Jordan exculpates himself for responsibility for the delays and uncertainty in this wise: On August 11 I turned to the attorney general for advice and he not only told m« not to regard the certifications of Mr. Paxri.h and hi. brother officers of the legislature as to assembly constitutional amend ment No. 2 and senate constitutional amendment No. .6; n c ß er t i i | fieL W the legislature had adjourned, after, as Mr. Parrlsh te^lls me. he had changed the journal to conform to them; but to go further, disregard their certification of all amendments and refer to the journals of the legislature—the full and complete stories of the transactions of each brinch-and there ascertain "the exact language that revived the approval of the requisite number of the members of the legislature as shown by the journals": that "In the performance of this duty you should disregard any document certified to you by the officers of either branch of that body which is not in accordance with the fact the exist ence of which is proved to you through an examination of the official Journa^of n that h body.' mMs A TeeMng wRh lnatte ntion to duty inefficiency and incompetency, which, boiling over, ran even within the portal of the "holy of holies" of our state, where you, the high priest" sat. and in blissful ignorance of what was set before you. wrote too much and too often, as. the edicts of the legislature show, and as the records sent to my office have too frequently shown the defects, in which, if not discovered by me and corrections made, would In the end have endangered the state's interests. It was on the night of your arrival near the scene—you didn t put in an appearance, though—that, despairing of getting from the story or that session what the journals actually showed. I turned again to the attorney general and asked for further advice, and he, with new light, directed me to go back to the beaten path which my predecessors had followed proceed a* they had proceeded, and in so doing I arrived at the same spot where I stood on the 11th of August, and was able to give the word on Tuesday to the state printer, which I could have given on the 11th of August had it not been for the failure of the officials to properly attend to their duties. The mib of the controversy is put up to the governor by Jordan in these direct questions and expositions of the alleged facts, which Include the direct charge that the governor knew and had admitted that the legislators and their attaches had been guilty of fatal blunders. And right here I charge you and your adherents, because it is noto rious that-they do nothing without consulting you. with being respon- Kible for the delay in the printing of these constitutional amendments and with having "jockeyed" with these public documents. It is a fact that when my letter of August 11 was before the attorney general the opinion was first held that I must take ray copy from the enrolled bills, and in doing so must submit senate constitutional amendment 13 as en rolled and certified and chaptered by you to me, and ignore the enrolled conies of senate constitutional amendment No. 6 and assemhly constitu tional amendment No. 2, certified to me after the legislature had ad journed. Did not yon and your friends, governor, find themselves In a dilemma; that to grasp one horn would be to have to go to. the people and tell them not to vote for senate constitutional amendment No. 13 because it had not received the»pproval of the assembly, and not to vote for senate constitutional amendment No. 6 and assembly constitutional amendment No. 2 because errors had been made by the officers of the leg islature in certifying and enrolling and by you in chaptering the same to me? Rather than be placed in this humiliating position, did you and your friends not decide to take the other horn of the dilemma, and did you not exert yourselves to the utmost to find decisions from other states which finally resulted in my being directed to ignore all enrolled Lmindments, and informed that the two enrolled constitutional amend ments certified and filed with me, prepared either by you or under your direction or approved by you after the legislature adjourned, were not worth the paper they were- printed on: that my duty was not to do as mv predecessors had done —as had been the practice In the past, to take my copy from the enrolled amendments, the most solemn declara tion of the legislature—but to go to the journals and therefrom obtain "the exact language that received the approval of the requisite number of the members of the legislature"? __- Jou did not think that the journals were so full of mist&kes. You though, did you not, that T would, if sent to the minutes, find that senate constitutional amendment No. 13 had not been approved in th<% assembly and that I. of course, would necessarily omit It from the list nibmitted and that in the minutes of the senate and assembly T would find the "exact language." etc., in which senate.constttutionai amend ment No. 6 and assembly ..constitutional amendment No. 2 had received the approval of the legislature, and that all would be well and you and your legislature would not have to admit jntompetency? You and they did not think that I would find the journals in such chaotic condi tions. Governor, on that last night you said, "No such record has ever before been presented by any legislature." That's so, didn't, they blunder awfully? You did not think that I would find five important amendments spread on the journals of but one of the houses, and when you and your adherents heard of it. did you not again scurry for deci sions that would put you on the track again? Your ablest advisers said that your legislature had erred miserably and that the failure to enter on the journals of both houses was fatal, and that rule ti of the senate was not there to be diregarded. Jordan does not stop with charging the legislature with incompetency. He lays the same charge at the door of the governor's office: I defy you to show one instance where I have failed to do ray duty, to be courteous and accommodating in attending to the business placed In my hands by your office to complete; I challenge yc-ur-personal record for efficient discharge of your official duties and place my name against yours. I place the record of my office against the record of your office and charge that -for inefficiency your office record is worse than that of the legislature. Beside declaring that h* will no longer submit to misrepresentation and abuse from the governor or any other official, Jordan makes an intensely earnest and direct appeal for Justice. In conclusion he says: r regret that I have had to make this statement; I Tiave counted the cost: I have not acted hastily. There was no other alternative. The press of the state has taken your cue and are pouring their vials of vituperation, misrepresentation and abuse upon me for doing my duty, acting, as Attorney General Webb has said, "in a most commendable manner." I have faith in the falrmindedness of the voters of this state —they will do me justice if I can get my story to them. I will be able to do so. There are yet, thank God, a few papers in California willing to publish both sides of the story. Governor, It is hard to avoid mis takes. You doubtless have suffered in the past, as I have, and will in the future, as I shall. We can not avoid It. Humanity is so erring. It is hard sometimes to find the right courne and steer steadily, espe cially when the heart strings, vibrating with sympathy,, seek to sway you from that course; but, governor, it is not hard to play fair—to re spond to. the better impulses of nature, to lift up, strengthen and en courage. Instead of seeking to break down, discourage and destroy. There is ever before us that divine admonition to remember always, "Judge not, lest ye be judged." THE SAN FRANCISCO CAUL, PAIR OF TUMBLERS BEST TURN OF WEEK Wynne Brothers, Cleverest of Their Kind, Redeem a Rather Tame Program Leading Sketch Is Spoiled by Affected Wickedness, Which Is a Terrible Bore WALTER ANTHONY Persistency in Orpheum attendance will be rewarded this week only in spots. The "regular" at the big vaude ville house will find many moments of satisfaction in the program, though he probably will say that the bill as an entity isn't up to the standard. Why? Well, because vaudeville is feminine and the answer is "because." The principal sketch doesn't quite merit its Important place on the bill, though it is clever enough—at the end. Madame Begson, who plays the role of th» affinity who has "busted up" the happy home of Mrs. Dean, assumes the wicked air with difficulty and doesn't convince when she asserts nonchalantly that men are not an experience, but only experiments. Her tearful story about her own child who dies when she was dining with a gentleman not her husband was unconvincing, too; fop if you thought about the narravtive at all you couldn't enjoy it, and If you didn't think about it at all, it wasn't of course pathetic. She tells Lawyer Sharp that it was her husband's fault. He drove her away from him and that's why she was dining with another man the night the baby died. She wept alone, though Lawyer Sharp made a decent effort to drop the sympathetic tear. However, the act ends out of pathos with a humorous touch <julte unexpected and delightful. The playlet more than the players makes the impression. AFFECTED WICKEDNESS A BORE Affected wickedness is a terrible bore and Madame Besson's cigarette smoking and naughty manners are to the lady's credit but not to the ac tress' credit, be it said, affected. Rosa Crouch and George Welch are two who pass away rapidly, but a part of whose stay Is distressing. There is much vulgarity, not of an engaging kind, believe me. In the early moments of their burlesque act, for which a rapid acrobatic dancing postlude hardly supplies excuse. Previous to these two acts come the Pender giants, loose from an English pantomime, and Carlton, the "long magician," stretched from last week. In the second part come Emmy and his pet dogs, which is a last week act and good yet; the "Pianophiend Mins trels" featuring Ila Grannon, who sings charmingly with a style all her own, and the "Cadets de Gascogne," who are three singers and an artist. The artist —I do not see her name on the pro gram—sings against the vocalism of her male companions with splendid voice and spirit and does her part in the inevitable trio from the last act of "Faust" with admirable verve (that's the only word). TWO CLEVER ACROBATS Afterward, and just before the mov ing pictures, come two af the cleverest of their kind. They are acrobats and they are brothers. They do a few stunts but mainly their success is the result of their manner. They stroll into the club dressed In conventional clothes and take off their coats to play what appears to be a game of billiards only the table has pool pockets. Anyway, that isn't what they are really there for. They lay aside their cues and go to work, or that is to say, begin to earn their salaries. This they do by throwing each other about, performing feats of strength, balancing and general gymnastics such as never before did a clubman do before the hour of 4 a. m. This is all accomplished without the least effort or attitudin izing. Between stunts they stroll about the room after the conscious manner of gentlemen dressed properly. These Wynne brothers are clever and quiet, and it Is In this later tone to the bill which forces the conclusion that though it has some interesting spots on .it, the "regular" will declare It to be not up to Orpheum average. After Nana, who I understand is ill from the effects of her wild gyrating, a bill without a fracture or a thrill is bound to seem tame. TWO ARMED FOOTPADS ROB SANTA ROSA MAN Jumping from a pile of lumber at First and Folsom streets shortly be fore 1 o'clock yesterday morning, two men armed with revolvers command ed A. P. Jensen, a recent arrival from Santa Rosa, to throw tip his hands. While one of the robbers held a pistol to Jensen's head, the other searched him and took a wallet containing $80. Warning their victim not to make an outcry the bandits ran down Folsom street toward the water front.

FIVE IN TAHOE RUN REACH TAVERN LATE Nine Machines Still Maintain Perfect Score Despite Bad Roads LEON J. PINKSON [Special Dispatch to The Call] TAHOE TAVERN, Aug. 27.—The second days' run in the Tahoe endur ance contest thinned the list^of per fect scores to nine, live of the four teen starters that left Auburn and Colfax on schedule time failing to reach the tavern within the time limit. The cars still holding perfect scores are the Winton, driven by Harry L. Owesney, western manager of the Win ton company; two Bulcks, driven by Fred Gross and Claude McGee re spectively; an Elmore, driven by B. W. Aurandt; an American, driven by Stan ley Gawne; a Lambert, dTiven by Sam Hall; a Flanders twenty, driven by Stanley Jonas; a Hudson, driven by Dr. Charles Pinkhlm and a Franklin, driven by A.S. Chisholm. The run today proved a hard test [ for both the drivers and the cars. The fifteen mile schedule that had to be maintained in the mountains between Auburn and the Lake, was conceded by most of the contestants as being too fast considering the steep grades and sharp turns that were encountered. Another feature that made the time ob jectionable was the fact that the roads' are In rough condition almost the en tire distance. The fine highway that the pathfind- Ing committee found a month ago has been badly cut up by heavy teaming- j and while it is fair enough for a I moderate speed, a fifteen mile an hour \ clip was strenuous. The drivers end ing the first half of the contest with perfect scores were compelled to exer cise extreme care and are worthy of ex tra mention for their clever work at the wheel. SMITH MOST UNFORTUNATE H. Smith of Sacramento who was piloting a Flanders in the run is per haps the most unfortunate of the driv ers who lost their perfect score. His failure to reach the control in time was caused by a mishap on the road lead ing down from the Summit to Dormer lake. Smith was repairing a puncture and had his car on the side of the road when Sam Hall, the Lambert driver. In coming down the grade, skidded into Smith's car and twisted the rear axle in such a way that the Flanders was put out of th^ contest. Smith, however, tried hard to reach the Tav ern on schedule with the disabled car. \ Only Four More Days I 1 —OF— i I GUMP'S | \jJiLIL I I Don't wait until the last day.

J. Smith, the Western Elmore distrib utor, lost out on a perfect score be cause of tire trouble, as did the Franklin, driven by John A. Taylor, of Oakland. The second Winton, driven by H. Young-, a private owner, came in an hour late, as Young believed the schedule too fast for his pleasure and consequently slowed down and trav eled to suit himself. The Flanders, driven by Miss Helen Weaver, also came in late, the time being too fast for thts fair driver, who has been driving her car only a month. CARS OFF THE nOITE Some complaint was registered as to the manner the course was marked. Several of the cars got off the route and had to make up much time when they got back on it again. The American was the first car to reach the Tavern. The work of the little Flanders, driven by Stanley Jonas, in making- the stiff grades was one of the distinct features of the run and proves that thf- little car possesses a world of power. The 19lJ Winton also made quite a hit in showing 1 its hill climbing abil ities, as did the American and the two Tiuicks and the Elmore. The Studebaker Garford car, which is being used by the San Francisco newspaper men, held its perfect score and led the run for the greater part of the day. No serious mishaps occurred today despite the fast schedule and tonight the motorists are having a gala time at the hotel. The start for home will begin to morow morning and the tourists will stop over at Sacramento in the even ing, reaching Pan Francisco on Tuesday afternoon. LABORER SLASHES HIS THROAT WITH RAZOR Cries of Injured Man Summon Fellow Lodgers Abraham Abraham, a laborer 30 years old, attempted to commit suicide yes terday morning in his room at 679 Clay street by slashing his throat with a razor. ledgers in the house were attracted by the cries of the injured man and he was taken to the central emergency hospital. He is in a critical condition. Abraham refuses to say why he attempted self-destruction.
